April 22 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks edged up in choppy trading on Wednesday as McDonald's turnaround plan and Visa's potential entry into China helped investors shrug off a mixed bag of results.

Dow component McDonald's rose 3.7 percent to $98.44 as the company said it was working on a plan to improve sales and profit, while Coca-Cola rose 1.1 percent to $41.22 after its revenue increased for the first time in nine quarters.

Visa gained as much as 7.1 percent to hit a record of $69.98, while MasterCard came shy of its all-time high after China said it would open up its market to foreign firms for clearing domestic bank card transactions from June.

MasterCard rose as much as 5.3 percent to $92.43.   Continuación...
